It has been about a month since The Great Moves of 2016.
First, I moved from my house of 5 years, into an RV. Not two weeks later, I was moving my office to a new location. It was a crazy and stressful time, but I pushed through it, and I am finally able to appreciate the after-effects.
Post-move, life has settled into a peaceful time. My new office location is not only beautiful, but the other practitioners in our wellness center are warm and welcoming. They have welcomed me, and the ladies that came with me, into their place. We are able to support and blend our practices nicely, as a result. It makes work a complete joy. After so much stress, I am finally able to begin focusing on building my business and expanding complementary wellness services. I find that my marketing mind is shifting back into gear.
I also love that my office window, which runs the length of my room, opens into a nature preserve. I am gifted with nature's delights every day as I work. The coconut tree drops her fruit right outside of my window. I watch bright yellow butterflies flit about the trees, and I can just make out scarlet red hibiscus flowers through the greenery. The energy flows through my office, and my clients always remark upon how relaxing it is in my new office.
All of this positivity has allowed me to finally shift my attention to my health. There is no way to overstate how out of shape I had become. The stress of the past couple of years had packed on the weight. I found that I would eat too much, drink too much, party too hard, and never get enough sleep. I just felt that I needed to forge ahead, and when life finally calmed down, I prayed it was not too late to undo the sins of my youth. I had already had a few warning signs with my blood sugar suddenly dropping on me. Even mild cocktails began fighting back with headaches and lethargy. Through it all, the scale stubbornly refused to reverse course.

So, all things considered, things have been great! I LOVE the positive feedback I get from my friends, family and clients. Now that the weight loss is beginning to show, the positive reinforcement keeps me motivated. I have a long journey to get where I want to be, but I feel like this has been a wonderful start for me. Wish me luck!
